BIOGASNET consortium experiences in biogas purification system

Project webinar series

LIFE Biogasnet project would like to invite you to attend the workshop “Biogasnet consortium experiences in biogas purification systems”. 

In this workshop you will be able to learn more about novel technologies, both in development and already in market, related to biogas desulfurisation. The workshop is designed to be a forum of discussion on new opportunities and advances in biogas promotion as a renewable energy source.

The workshop is addressed especially to landfill and urban solid wastes treatment plants operators, other biogas providers, policy makers, biogas-related organisations and researchers interested in biogas desulfurisation technologies.
